Am I the only one who’s been a bit of a downer today because of the weather? This week has been pretty blue, and it took a little toll on me. To cheer myself up, I figured I’d share my Thai Grand Canyon experience.
You may ask yourself, Grand Canyon in Thailand? Having been to the American Grand Canyon (Vegas 2016 was AMAZING), I was pretty much expecting a similar situation. To my surprise, the Thai Grand Canyon was a lot more modest. It’s more of a family water park, accompanied by an adults only beach next door.
Apparently they’ve had quite a few injuries from people jumping off the canyons into the water, so they’ve made it extremely secure. They now have designated diving zones that are heavily guarded with lifeguards. I couldn’t muster the courage to dive as my friend who went in before said the water was too cold.
Now that I’m finally settled down and have a routine, I REALLY miss Thailand and the easy-going nature of its people. It was truly one of the most amazing trips of my life. I highly recommend a visit to the Chiang Mai Grand Canyon. It’s probably one of the cheapest escapes from the city, and it’s worth it. I spent a few hours hiding in the shade with a good book (and my phone).
